For the second year in a row, the UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals are bare of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Manchester United was eliminated from the Champions League after losing 2-1 on aggregate against Atletico Madrid.
Meanwhile, Lionel Messi’s Paris Saint-Germain was eliminated early by Real Madrid with a 4-2 aggregate score. The surprises didn’t end there, as Villarreal, the reigning UEFA Europa League winners, knocked out Serie A club Juventus in the final 16.
The Quarter-Finals and Semi-Finals were drawn on Friday, March 18. The first and second legs of the Quarter-Finals will be played on April 5 and 6, 2022, and April 12 and 13, 2022, respectively. The first and second legs of the Semi-Final, on the other hand, will be held on April 26 and 27, and May 3 and 4, respectively.
The draw produced four intriguing matches and established the bracket for the semifinals and final, which will be held on May 28 at the Stade de France in Paris suburbs. The final was initially slated to take place in Saint Petersburg, but it was rescheduled due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last month, according to UEFA.
